Era Romana in stile moderno

Città sorprendente per l’ampio raggio di storia in cui ci troviamo immersi, Aosta accoglie il turista alla ricerca di pace e tranquillità, ma dà anche occasione di innumerevoli incontri di cultura e conoscenza. Abituiamoci al fatto che qui si parlano due lingue (italiano e francese a cui va aggiunto il patois valdostano), relative a comunità che convivono amabilmente.

Mentre la leggenda ci racconta che Aosta nacque col nome di Cordelia, derivato da Cordelio, amico di Ercole, la storia ci dice che i primi insediamenti riconosciuti e riscontrati avvennero nei tempi protostorici e ne sta a riprova la necropoli con tombe megalitiche ritrovati di recente.

Qui la dominazione romana fu influente ed Aosta divenne punto di passaggio della Via Gallia, collegamento tra Pianura Padana e, appunto, la Gallia. 

La capitale della Val d’Aosta è oggi un museo a cielo aperto, e potrete apprezzare, passeggiando nel centro, quello che è rimasto di Archi, Porte, Teatri e Anfiteatri, Ponti e Ville risalenti all’epoca romana, ma anche resti del periodo medievale (chiese, cattedrali e collegiate).  Molte vie sono intitolate ad abati, priori, vescovi, cosa che ci dice molto dei poteri del tempo, e le troverete intatte e sorprendentemente tranquille, affiancate alla via principale sede di commercio e mondanità. In pochi passi dal centro potrete godere della pace e benessere della verde campagna.

In città non perdete una visita al Teatro e all’Arco Romano, il Museo Archeologico Regionale, il Criptoportico Forense e la Chiesa Paleocristiana di San Lorenzo e la Collegiata di Sant’Orso. Nel silenzio di quest’ultimo quartiere il piccolo Cimitero di Saint Ours, sopravvissuto a devastazioni e ruberie, è una grande sorpresa con le sue tombe risalenti al periodo 1782 – 1930, mantenuto in ordine grazie all’ Associazione di Volontariato “Amis du cimitière du Bourg”.

Fuori Aosta, avendone il tempo, suggerisco una visita ai vicini castelli di cui i più vicini sono: 

  • Il castello di Fénis, fortezza merlata e residenza signorile con magnifici affreschi.
  • Il castello di Sarre, casino di caccia della famiglia Savoia, residenza sabauda. Impressionante la grande sala con trofei.
  • Il castello Sarriod de la Tour a Saint-Pierre, di grande interesse architettonico.
  • Il castello di Aymavilles, elegante dimora signorile (ora in fase di restauro) all’imbocco della valle di Cogne.

Posso solo aggiungere che la val d’Aosta è rinomata per l’offerta gastronomica tipica e di alta qualità. Troverete ottime osterie e trattorie ovunque.

Come arrivare:

  • Aeroporto: Torino (circa un’ora)
  • Auto: autostrada Milano – Torino poi proseguire per la Val d’Aosta
  • Treno: da Torino  

 Altro da vedere:

  • Teatro romano, Arco di Augusto e Porta Pretoria
  • Osservatorio Astronomico della Regione Autonoma e Planetario di Lignan
  • Area megalitica di Saint-Martin-de-Corléans
  • Parco Nazionale Gran Paradiso
